Introduction of the Kaguradan/
Since the early Meiji period, the Omori Kagura Troupe has been active since the beginning of the Meiji era with the dedication of the autumn festival (the third Saturday of October) of Omori Hachiman Shrine (Yuki-cho, Saeki-ku, Hiroshima), which is a Uji-jinja Shrine. We are proud to have kept the tradition of dedication except during disasters caused by typhoons. Also, in the process of seeking the possibilities of kagura, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to dedicate it to various events. While paying attention to the tradition of good old kagura, we would like to carry on the passion of seniors for kagura as a good tradition as a kagura group rooted in the community, and deliver Omori Kagura to everyone.
